Care Philosophy

I provide the best possible comprehensive care for each of my patients, one patient at a time. I spend the time needed by each patient on each visit. I want every visit to make a positive difference for each patient. That includes a better understanding of the patients medical conditions by both me and the patient. It also includes a thorough understanding of the plan of care by the patient. I honor the AMA Bill Of Patient Rights and for each patient to give their informed consent for care.Read more

I value the information provided by current and former patients when they complete their patient surveys.  I am particularly attentive to information indicating areas or aspects of my practice that may need improvement.

Amazing experience aside from the receptionist, Jamie. She is extremely rude and unprofessional. She openly complains about her personal life, will talk down to you, and hang up on you when you call. She permanently sounds annoyed and talks with an attitude when she doesn't agree with you. I've never experienced someone as unprofessional as this receptionist. I really hope her superiors notice how she treats their patients and can help her correct her poor behavior. It's making an excellent prac
I appreciate this patient's comments and addressed them in a one on one meeting with Jammie shortly after they appeared. Jammie has worked with me for over 10 years and has been responsible for patient scheduling and supervising all front office activities. In my experience with her, she has always done everything possible to make new patients feel welcome. This patient's experience was not typical, but we discussed the importance of trying to meet each patient's needs in a polite manner.

Dr. Skie says...

Dr. Skie was an honors program graduate from the University of Houston in 1979.  I attended the University of Houston Medical School at Houston and was awarded a Student-Medical Scientist Fellowship through the National Institute of Health Cancer Center under the mentorship of Stephen Rosenberg, MD, PhD, the Director of the Surgery Section of the NIH.  He did his post-graduate training at the University of Texas Affiliated Hospitals in Houston.

I want every visit to make a positive difference for each patient. That includes a better understanding of the patients medical conditions by both me and the patient.

Dr. Skie says...

I have significant experience in diagnosing and treating Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, called RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) for many years.  I was affiliated with a clinic in Fort Worth, The Pain Treatment Center,  that had a 35 year history of treating patients with RSD.  Many of these patients continued to come to this clinic for their care after I arrived, so I was able to see a relatively large number of these patients despite the rarity of the condition. 

Dr. Skie says...

I have extensive training in out-patient procedures to treat a wide variety of chronic pain conditions.  This training includes didactic sessions at many national training programs over the past 12 years.  I have completed over 50 hours of Category I continuing medical education in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain conditions over the past 10 years.  In addition, I have had hands-on instruction in spinal facet injections, intra-articular joint injections, peripheral nerve blocks and myofascial injections by Dr. Gabor Racz and Dr. Kenneth Pearce.
